Multiple Category Email Subscription (6 posts)

    Hey Guys,

    Bit of a tricky question.

    I run a WP site with many different Post Categories. We would like users to be able to signup to receive email updates when new posts are added to categories.

    In the past I have used Feedburner or MailChimp RSS Broadcast for users to signup to updates to specific RSS feeds.

    What I would like to do is have a subscription form with checkboxes for each category and the user can then select which categories are of interest to them.

    As you can imagine there are many combinations/permutations or categories and so this would have to work dynamically.

    I haven't found a plugin which manages all of this, as yet. Any idea where to start? Is this even possible?

    Thanks,

    I'm looking for the exact same thing. I've resigned myself to manually doing it by setting up MailChimp RSS-driven campaigns for each Parent Category of interest to users. But if you find anything....

    Did you find a solution of sorts? If so, what is the URL so I can see what you did?

    Didn't go with this feature in the end. The only solution I could think of was to use something like feedburner and add each individual category feed URL as separate signup options.

    For example: yourdomain.com/category/books/feed/
